~ The 9th Door the main menu focuses on classic Spanish Tapas creatively and zestfully infused with flavor and an ever changing list of delicious wines from the wineries of Spain and South America. The 9th Door can be found beneath a copper-covered awning in the heart of historic lower downtown Denver (LoDo). A large door on the front of the building is opened on warm days for patio seating. The design and ambiance of our lounge has been crafted to provide a sense of comfort and relaxation.
Why The 9th Door...
On Spain's Costa del Sol, located between Malaga and Marbella, sits a quiet little mountain village called Mijas.
During the summer of 1969, after having been made famous by James Michener's novel The Drifters, Mijas had become an expatriate community of writers and poets. On lazy afternoons, these expats would gather at their favorite bar - one without a name, recognizable only by the number nine that was carved into the door.
Behind the ninth door, they would imbibe on the local wine and brandy and share the tapas of the house, trading stories and reciting poetry to the local women until the early hours of the morning.
